A question about Sudbury. This was from 2009 when nickel prices were very low. I tried to find older data but it seems a special request needs to be made. How does Sudbury look in 2006 when nickel prices were high? How does Sudbury's GDP track with time? Is it really a boom and bust place?

(I totally get these questions are somewhat beside your point.)

My bad. Found it.

Since I asked the question I'll answer it. Sudbury in 2009 was sharply down. Nickel prices were down and there was a strike at Vale formany months in '09.

Chris and CJJ:$
According to the report, Sudbury's nominal per capita GDP was 28727 in 2001, $42162 in 2005 and $42138 in 2009.

I clicked on experimental estimates of gross domestic product. I then clicked on "381-5000" in the box at the bottom which generated a table "Metropolitan gross domestic product, experimental estimates".

Greater Sudbury peaked at 8247M$ in 2007 and was down to 6958M$ in 2009. Population would have changed some (influx for the nickel boom and outflux when the boom ended.)

Does anyone know what % of Toronto's GDP is due to Toronto proper and what % is from places like Missisauga and other suburbs?
